@tamara12 1) do you hear any noise
2) can you boot on live cd, like hirens boot cd
3) go to bios and see if the boot order is on your hard drive that containe windows xp.
4) reset cmos battery

@tamara12 ,

If you're trying to boot another OS on a modern laptop (post 2014) which have TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chips and Secure Boot, you will have a harder time installing another OS.

My first suggestion is to tinker with your laptop's BIOS settings, and disable Secure Boot.
Secondly, enable Legacy Boot first before UEFI Boot, since Legacy Boot is more compatible for older OSes like Windows XP.
Third, if you are using a Flash Drive (USB) to boot Windows XP for installation, enable USB Boot and set it priority before the Hard Drive and the DVD Drive.
Fourth, save all settings (commonly by pressing F10) and reboot.

This should work.

Kindly inform me by using the tag @SetupComputer if it worked, or if you have other queries. You can attach screenshots for better understanding of your problem. Thanks! :)
